1 out of 5 eggs Failed customer support 07/17/2013

This review is from: ECS BLACK SERIES A780GM-A AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Not with this. This is the 2nd one. Guess I didn't learn the 1st time.

Cons: Board started to fail. Did all the required troubleshooting.
Customer service kept coming up with all sorts of new methods of troubleshooting. I replaced with another board and my computer is up and running. I'm just trying to get a simple RMA to replace. Customer service section is conveniently unavailable after going through all the hoops to fill out online.

Other Thoughts: Epic fail on customer service and this is the 2nd ECS board I have bought. No more. :(

Time to upgrade to 16Gb now.

4 out of 5 eggs Better than stock 09/14/2010

This review is from: Scythe USA SCVMS-1000 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: It's running 10 deg. C cooler than stock @ idle so far, hoping it'll lower some more once the paste cures on the sinks & gpu itself.
Installed w/ Gelid GC Extreme thermal paste.
Simple to install.

Cons: If thermal tape doesn't have the 3M logo on it....don't use it! This VGA cooler does not have very good tape. Use thermal adhesive for the h/s or they will fall off.
Fortunately I always keep some Artic Silver thermal adhesive for such occasions and was prepared.

Other Thoughts: Installed on a EVGA 9800 GTX & monitoring temps w/ EVGA Precision 2.0. - Fans @ 40%
